I suspect a 9mm headache lies in Putin's future, Russian government is in shambles at this point, believe it or not.

"Well Orchestrated Putin Public Addressing!. Military well Drilled. Politicians Attentive.
Now look behind the Smoke Screen. Indeed In front of it.
" Profiling The Stolid"
Facial expressions. Involuntary body movements.
Nonverbal cues that can communicate emotions, thoughts, or desires.
Purposefully communicating thoughts and ideas, alongside emotional reactions to inner feelings.
Body language accounts, for between 60% to 65% of all communication.
Conclusion. Putin watching his back . Has only one Certainty. At his back. BRUTUS.
Inshallah.

Not a live war account but related to the Ukraine war. The prospects for a long and peaceful retirement are probably not great in Russia.

With more admissions from the Pentagon that the war in Ukraine is not going as well as hoped and with Ukraine using munitions faster than they can be produced and provided by the west the US is considering dipping into more stocks of old munitions, this time old stocks of cluster munitions, which are banned in most countries and which would could some significant angst among the US and its allies.

The US is among very few countries that did not sign up the the Cluster Munitions ban, along with Ukraine and Russia, but said openly it would no longer use the munitions on the battlefield and ceased doing so technically from 2016 following a congressional order.

Since then all stock has been placed in storage while awaiting plans for their destruction, resistance for doing so coming from some quarters of the military who believe all options for attacking the enemy should remain available for field commanders, regardless of the risk of collateral damage and cluster munitions pose a significant threat.

There would still be large hurdles to overcome, not least from Congress and some allies, but as the situation in Ukraine becomes more desperate some will try to overcome them.

Yes they are, though it is thought they are, or were for service in Syria or the CAR. Negotiations with Assad were all but complete for several 10s of thousands of troops.

And more disturbing news regarding Ukraine, Human Rights Watch has credible evidence that Ukraine is spreading banned anti personnel mines across territory currently occupied by Russia, and several hundreds of thousand of Russian Ukrainian's in contravention of the 1997 treaty which Ukraine signed up for, these are spread by firing rockets into the air above an area and then disperse, they cause significant injuries in the most indiscriminate fashion and are a nightmare to try and clear.

What has WW2" or Stalin got to do with the it? Absolute nonsense post. BTW NATO is everyone's enemy, just ask Iraq or Afghanistan or Yugoslavia.
